Gina G. Getz’s First Check-up My Life 07 OCT 2010

So my beloved little 1.4 Gina G. Getz has managed to clock up to her 15,000 kilometre mark already, after owning her for just over six months now, meaning she is travelling in excess of 2,000 kilometres per month!

The girl looks rather mean in this cropped shot, doesn't she?

This does of course mean that my extended warranty taken out on my brand spanking new car might not exactly last for all that long at the rate at which I’m going, but hey, I need to get to work, so what can one do?

Anyway, the 15,000 kilometre achievement (I half expect to hear the XBOX happy noise to play in my head when the odometer hits the precise achievement value) brings with it Gina G. Getz’s first official check-up (or service if you will), meaning that come next Monday 11/10/2010, my girl will be sitting in the hands of some unknown greasy mechanic as he fondles her and attempts to get off her bits one by one.

But it must be done and thanks to all the paperwork and all that extra money I’m paying  a month, this little trip shouldn’t cost me a cent – but that still doesn’t mean I like the prospect of hearing about any potential things that might have gone wrong with her already!

At least I scored a free lift back to Gordon’s Bay in the morning though, so the guys over at Hyundai Helderberg can’t be all that bad I suppose! :P
